Hi Craig,

rosegarden is now in good hands. Brendan Jones picked it up, and I
will remain as a comaintainer and will help in case there is need.

The remaining packages that were not picked up are:

- aldrin: Modular music sequencer/tracker. dead project. there is a
fork called neil which is active (not in Fedora). has 1 open ABRT bug.
- armstrong: library. dead. needed by aldrin only.
- creox: dead kde3 project. Real-time Sound Processor. have other
packages with similar functionality. has 1 open bug.
- kguitar: dead kde3 project. it has an unfinished kde4 port. Guitar
Tabulature Music Editor. have other packages with same functionality
- ctan-musixtex-fonts, tex-musixtex: Sophisticated music typesetting.
needed by kguitar
- esperanza: dead media player GUI for xmms2. not using anymore. xmms1
is still good :)
- hydrogen-drumkits: this was a collection of drumkits. hydrogen has
now its own interface to download drumkits. I think there is no need
to distribute this selection.
- pytagger: ID3 Tag Reader and Writer Library for Python 2
- raul: Realtime Audio Utility Library. no other Fedora package uses it.
- rtaudio: Real-time Audio I/O Library. needed by armstrong only.
- tse3: dead library. needed by kguitar

I will contact the Fedora Release Engineering in a couple days and get
the rest removed from Rawhide as required by the policies. After that,
if you want a package back in Fedora, you will need to submit a new
review request as if it were a fresh new package.
